Can anyone from Pakistan suggest a brand name which contains calcium,magnesium and vitamin D?
I am unable to find the combination and doctors aren't much help.My daughter is taking Chewcal right now which contain vitamin D and calcium.By the way when we tested her magnesium levels in summer they were normal,is she supposed to take magnesium still?

Centrum Silver does not have iron in it. See the label at http://www.centrum.com/product_detail.aspx?productid=CENTRUMSLVR&panel=tablets

Thanks a lot Andy. I've gone mad searching for a multivitamin. My brains are not working.

Anie!!

Those white spots could be from your liver!!! Do you have alot of iron in your liver or do you have Hep C?

they are not because of lack of calcium...


Sahil,

I am not sure about centrum silver its different to the centrum here in australia... We just got a new one and its all Vit B groups...

We have another multivitamin here called SWISSE multi and there is one that doesnt contain any iron or iodine in it...You only take one...

its no use taking a multivitamin with iron..defeats the purpose of chelating..

Hope this helps..

Thanks a lot Smurfette!!

Andy has cleared my doubt about Centrum Silver, that it doesn't contain iron.

in Swisse multivitamins there are 5 of them, in which one doesn't contain iron. Please check once, I'm giving the link below. The very first one is the one you're talking about I guess.

Thanks again!!

Sahil,

Yes the mens formula doesnt contain any iron and there is a women's formula too...I should have said that... lol


So any women out there that  have thal maj and want to take multivitiamis..they surely can..

I do and they are good for you..not only are they a multivitamin they have minerals and antioxidants and herbs..

 Thank you..

Smurfette,

I'm pretty much sure, like Centrum Silver, Swisse Men's Ultivite Glucose Balance D is also not marketed in India. And I don't have any info whether an Indian Pharmaceutical Company manufactures multivitamins like these two. So, I'll have to call for the drugs which ever I go for. Could you please find out the cost of Swisse Men's Ultivite Glucose Balance D, as I'm not able to find it. It would be of great help Smurfette.

Thanks!!
